TaiwanPlus CEO Joanne Tsai says, “One of our central goals is to let the world hear Taiwan’s voice. The collaboration will allow us to create content in line with current trends among the American youth, and ultimately let us bring Taiwan’s to a broader audience.”
Luke Lee, CEO of the Overseas Compatriots Culture and Education Foundation, explains that the Overlapped project, with the central theme of “Connecting Places and Cultures,” aims to center itself around elements from today’s digital world, grass-roots creativity, and Taiwan from an overseas perspective. “The content can include everything from food, day-to-day life, ideology, social identity, and more,” adds Lee, “In analyzing our differences, we can also discover what brings us all together.” The first episode of the “Overlapped” series is slated to kick-off in late May.
